|How Do I Create Links to the Online Campus Directory?|
Save yourself work as a departmental Web Liaison and conform to best web practices. Each campus should CENTRALIZE all web contact info, instead of DUPLICATING (cutting and pasting) information from an existing source into a new separate web page. In other words, all departmental pages should point to a single, definitive source for Contact Info - namely, NCCU's official Online Campus Directory (OCD).|
For example, if you were the Web Liaison for the ITS department, look carefully at the URL below (which demonstrates how to make a link on your departmental page for an individual employee named "Derek Brinson"):
Here is a link that generates a complete list of employees in the department:
To get the appropriate employee listing link for your department, simply go to the main page of the OCD. Make the appropriate selection in the "Department" drop box, and click "Search". The page that follows will include the proper URL for you to use for your departmental contact list. NCCU's FDR (Forms and Documents Repository) creates dynamic department-specific lists in a similar way.
Web Services has created another FAQ specific to our dynamic content.
If there are inaccuracies within your department listing, please contact NCCU's IT Helpdesk.
Information to revise/update an individual's OCD profile (e.g., contact information, photo, bio, etc.) is available in a separate FAQ.
